Are you glad that there is finally one post aside from mooncakes? *chuckle* Hm … I’m glad too! While I do enjoy making mooncakes but imagine it’s nothing but mooncakes for 5 consecutive weeks and in between there are the orders to fulfill. The major production will begin this weekend, after 100 odd lotus paste filling last night, I literally smell of lotus paste! Putting that aside, this post is more of my experience using the measuring jug. I’ve been using the plastic type but while I was preparing some orange juice in the plastic jug the other day, I was horror to find that somehow the acidity of the orange has “eaten” up the surrounding of the jug which the surface became rough. Do check yours too! I decided to buy a glass measuring jug in the end, I don’t have to worry about pouring hot water in, I use it to melt butter/chocolates as well. Thou it’s a little heavy as mine is a 4 cups but at least I could use it with ease.
If you’re wondering what’s inside the jug? It’s actually the mooncake syrup that will be use for preparing baked mooncakes!
